    This will be my most expensive trip yet.

    I already planned on going to Disney World after the con to take advantage of the free dining. Nevertheless, I bought a ticket. It's been years since I was on the ride, but I enjoyed it. Looking forward to seeing the fireworks and all.

    It's been 14 years since I was on it last. Really looking forward to getting out there again.

    So after some discussion, the wife and I dropped our plans to do Harry Potter World at Universal and use that money for the Star Tours event. We'll just go to Universal in a year or two as a weekend getaway or something.

    YES!!
    It was the biggest wast of time at a Celebration I have ever had. I got the Grievous T-shirt and a $6 drink and as soon as they started playing SW music colipso style I was OUT A THERE.

    Nothing. I spent the night sitting outside of the venue, becuase some friends were in a looooong line to get facepaint. It wasn't worth staying inside.

    I've got my tix, and am also a former Disney Cast Member and have worked similar "hard ticketed" events in the past. Your ticket will allow you to enter Disney's Hollywood Studios after 4pm, and stay for the SW festivities until closing. Once the "regular guests" have exited the park, certain sections of the park or attractions may be closed off to allow for all of the SW activities to be in a general area. Hard ticketed events are a ton of fun, because there's usually a lot less people in the park than during normal hours, and everyone who's in the park is there for the same purpose. I suspect that the usual SW Weekends performers will dust off their acts, including the Hyperspace Hoopla and Jedi Training Academy shows, and there will be SW characters EVERYWHERE.

    It's going to be a ton of fun!!

    So doesn't this mean that from 4-8 pm there will be Disney employees AND fans dressed up in Star Wars costumes, while regular guests are there? I know during SWW when a few fans were dressed in the park, some regular guests were asking them for autographs, photos, etc., and doesn't Disney frown upon that? Will the Disney employees not be dressed up until 8 pm?

    Since you are a former cast member and have worked "hard ticketed" events before, maybe could you provide some insight on how limited the ticket quantity might be?

    While I am really ambivalent about the Hyperspace Hoopla & Dance Off with the Star Wars Stars, I have zero doubt Last Tour to Endor is gonna be a blast from start to finish. And I'm confident Disney will put together some new good shows for us that do go. I got pumped up when I first heard about it and bought my tickets the day they went on sale.

    Just bought my tickets........now to get around to purchasing those C5 tickets! This looks like so much fun! I have always wanted to go to Star Wars Weekends but have never had the opportunity so this will have to do for me :) Also if anyone is interested and still looking for hotels it looks like there is going to be a deal at Port Orleans, including shuttle service to and from the convention. Here is the link: http://mydisneymeetings.com/cv/c926055344b55210vgnvcm100000d864a8c0rcrd

    Hope to see you all there :)
    BTW this is a Disney party so it is guaranteed to be AMAZING! I can't wait, i've been to the Halloween party twice and loved it!

    Interesting...

    Do you know if that complimentary shuttle service to the convention center is Saturday night only or if that is for the entire four days of the convention? If it's all four days, we may be changing our hotel plans.

    I emailed the assistance link and asked about the Convention Center shuttle. I expect it's daily I'm just concerned how often it runs. I'll post their response when received. I haven't booked my hotel yet so I'm still weighing options. My original plan was to move to Disney for a few days after C5.

    Found this over on the Convention Center thread. Looks like they quietly updated their site with the Shuttle schedule.

    I received a response from Disney regarding the shuttle from their hotel to the convention center.


    Since the shuttle transportation is so limited I'm going to pass on staying at Disney during the convention and just go for a few days after C5 ends. I did however purchase tickets for the Last Tour. I've attended many of the Disney special events and feel it's something worth attending. I would agree most of the major rides will be open during the party. I'm also hopeful they will have event tshirts and pins like they do for their other parties. After all, I need to spend more $ and who wouldn't want to do it surrounded by like minded individuals. :)

    EDIT: I just remembered there used to be a display of movie props and costumes back where the canyon ride was located. Does anyone know if it's still there? I know it had several costumes from the Star Wars movies. It was there last time I walked back that way but I didn't make it that far back when I was there last October.

    Disney won't begin the SW festivities until 8pm. If fans arrive costumed early, they won't object, but it'll be regular park activity until the party officially starts.

    Ticket quantities will be much more limited than say, a regular park day. The total guests allowed in the park will still be in the thousands, but it won't be nearly as crowded as the normal operating hours. These type of events really are the best way to experience the parks. You get access to the attractions, plus custom theming all for SW. It's a win, win!

    We were there in October and yes the SW display is still at the end of the Backlot Tour. It had a Darth Vader and Darth Maul costumes on display and some various pics. Also, there is a Jabba Sail Barge and Snowspeeder during the outside part of the tour.

    Thanks for the response, Carolyn!

    That actually may suit our needs pretty well, so I may be making a call to Disney today to make our reservations. We planned to make this a duel Celebration-Disney trip anyway and it would be a big help to get the perks of staying on Disney property(not worrying about luggage at the airport, transportation to and from the airport and extra hours in the parks).

    Got tix today! They are cards with pics of Disney characters. If you have ever been to the Halloween party or other special event at Disney then the cards are the same. They are used like a room key or hopper pass. At the Halloween party last year, we also got wrist bands.

    It's a waste to stay on Disney property for the con anyways, Maulfly and I are at the Orlando Wyndam Resort, $69 a night (usually 120), they might still have rooms left. Stay at Disney after the con, they're running a free dining with 3day/4night stays at moderate or better hotels, we're doing that since we're bringing her mom with us, she's never been to Disney.

    And yes, we got our tix for the party :p That way we can skip Hollywood Studios altogether and do MK, Epcot, Animal Kingdom then home.
